Last month we discussed some of the initial ways that you can determine whether a home health care provider is right for you. By knowing what you need from your in-home care, you can ask the right questions, such as whether or not they specialize in pediatric home care or whether they are qualified to provide medical home health care services. These are some other questions to ask in order to determine whether or not an at-home care agency is right for you and your family:
What areas do you serve?
Finding a home health care provider that is local to Greensboro will allow you to receive the care and attention you need, when you need it. There is no need to have in-home care that has an office 40 minutes to an hour away, because if there is an emergency, you need someone at your home immediately.
What do you charge?
Home health care agencies generally charge either an hourly rate or an overall cost for a service or set of services. You will want to choose different options based on your need, and this can be discussed with Mission Medstaff, so that you know you are getting the service you need at a price you can afford.
Is there financial assistance available?
In almost every instance, health insurance will cover the cost of in-home adult care. However, every patient is different and every case is unique. When it comes to pediatric care and other home health needs, you should be able to discuss financial options with your home health care agency in an open, honest format.
What is the emergency protocol?
Knowing this ahead of time will save you a lot of trouble down the road. You want to invest in a home health care that is invested in you, and knowing their availability and emergency protocols will enable you to make the right choice for your loved one and for your peace of mind.
